Professional development through workshops offered around the country for conservators responsible for the care of humanities collections.

On behalf of the American Institue for Conservaiton of Historic & Artistic Works (AIC), the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation (FAIC) seeks funding in the amount of $264,198 to support nine workshops consisting of five topics over a two year period. This initiative is part of the AIC's newly expanded program of professional development for conservators of cultural heritage, and builds on the successes and lessons learned from previous programs. An estimated 128 conservators will participate. 45 scholarships will increase access for conservators in underserved regions through travel stipends. A blended learning module will be created to improve an existing course on Adhesives for Conservation. A job task analysis will be conducted to help prioritize future training programs and as the basis for a online tool for conservators to assess and track their professional development needs.
